It’s no secret that influencers are constantly searching for a history that will raise their Instagram popularity, and that these backgrounds – from Chernobyl, to California wildfires, to Black Lives Matter protests – will trigger a fair share of the uproar. However, one of the new developments, involving a private jet, is leading people to doubt the very essence of reality.
Nahhhhh I just found out LA ig girlies are using studio sets that look like private jets for their Instagram pics. It’s crazy that anything you’re looking at could be fake. The setting, the clothes, the body… idk it just kinda of shakes my reality a bit lol. pic.twitter.com/u0RsOnyEEk

The private jet in question can be seen in a number of Instagram posts and TikTok footage, but that’s nothing new in itself: as early as 2017, the influencers had been booking ground jets for photo shoots. The exception, in this situation, is that there is no aircraft at all.
Pictures shared yesterday on Twitter illustrate the fact that the private jet is really just a California-based studio with backlit windows and a luxurious interior that unexpectedly disappears out of reach. An online listing includes additional details identifying the collection as the first of its kind in Los Angeles.

Inevitably, the Twitter post was filled with feedback and screenshots pointing out influencers who took advantage of the context, with Lil Nas X – never to miss a moment on the viral internet – even expressing his thoughts.

It’s true, in many instances, it’s not clear if the influencers were attempting to pull it off as the actual thing, or only messing around with the fantasy of flying in a private jet (the Instagram captions have been edited since the tweet went up, to make it obvious that it’s just a set). Either way, the facade does not keep on any longer, but it does act as a convenient warning that anything you see on social media may not be what it appears.
